Commenting on the resignation of FIFA President Sepp Blatter yesterday evening, Tibor Navracsics, EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, said: "I have taken note of the latest developments at FIFA. They represent one step in a long process that now has to follow to restore trust and establish a solid system of good governance at FIFA. We respect sports federations’ right to run themselves, but after so many missed opportunities and the complete loss of trust in FIFA, I believe we should support fundamental change and ensure that solid solutions are put in place. I am now beginning to reflect on how the European Commission, and action at EU level more broadly, can play a role in this. We owe it to the millions of fans in Europe and beyond, who love sport – and who deserve so much better. We will develop the close cooperation we have built with a broad range of sport organisations and Member States to strengthen sport’s place in society and fight the big threats to its integrity. We have built up sound expertise and created a number of tools which we can use to support those who will now push for change."
